Additions:
Before closing, it is customary for many makers to put their personal label inside the instrument. The labels come in many different shapes and types. Hide glue is used to attach the paper label to the maple back. The information on the label can be the name of the author, date and place of creation, the number of the instrument. The position of the label is usually somewhere in the center part of the back plate so as to be readily seen through the f-holes, but many makers put their marks also in other parts inside the instrument, ie. on the ribs (Stradivari). Just avoid the soundpost location :)
